Subnautica: Below Zero - Where To Find Kyanite

By Harry Alston


Tips and tricks on how to get Kyanite in Subnautica: Below Zero.

Kyanite is one of the trickier resources to get your hands on in Subnautica: Below Zero. Located in the depths of the Crystal Caves, the route is dangerous, and you will be traveling down to depths of close to 600  meters. Let's just say you will probably need the Seatruck Perimeter Defense upgrade.

Kyanite is used to craft the Depth Module Mark 3 for the Seatruck, which is a shame because that Depth upgrade would be extremely useful during your search for Kyanite. This guide will cover different methods of getting to the Crystal Caves, and how to do it with the minimum risk of getting ripped to pieces by a Leviathan. No guarantees. This is Subnautica, after all.

Where To Find Kyanite In Subnautica: Below Zero

Kyanite is only found in two locations in Below Zero: the Crystal Caves and the succeeding Fabricator Caverns. Because the Fabricator Caverns are accessed via the Crystal Caves and are extremely dangerous, we will be focusing only on the Crystal Caves for the purposes of this guide.

Kyanite is used to craft some valuable upgrades, like the Seatruck Depth Module Mark 3 and the Prawn Suit Depth Module Mark 2. To complete the story and explore everything that Below Zero has to offer, you will need Kyanite.

To get to the Crystal Caves you need to:

  • Head South from the Drop Pod location, around 900-100 meters, until you reach the Purple Vents biome.
  • Watch out for the Chelicerate that roams the Northern part of the Purple Vents biome.
  • Dive down to a depth of around 350 meters and you will see the beginning of the Deep Purple vents, and then beyond that, the entrance to the Crystal Caves.
  • The Crystal Caves are deep purple in color. You will need to venture beyond 500 meters to get to where the Kyanite resides.
  • Do not venture too far into the center of the Crystal Caves as a Shadow Leviathan roams that area.

An alternative route includes a small hole close to Marguerit Maida's Base. Once you find it, you can drop down straight into the Crystal Caves biome.

This is a safer route than venturing through the Purple Vents, though it can be a bit tricky to find.

What you need before going on a hunt for Kyanite:

  • Seatruck - This is pretty much essential for getting down to the depths required for the Crystal Caves. Because you will inevitably run into aggressive fauna along the way (the Chelicerate near the Purple Vents, the Cryptosuchus on the way to the biome, and potentially the Shadow Leviathan in the Crystal Caves) the Seatruck helps you stay out of trouble. It's one of the best vehicles in the game for this reason.
  • Depth Module Mark 2 - This is the bare minimum for venturing as deep as the Crystal Caves. Ideally, you'd want the Mark 3, but you need Kyanite to craft it, so you'll have to do without it for now.
  • Primitive Defense System Upgrade - This Seatruck upgrade is crucial for venturing past the Chelicerate and for any potential run-ins with other fauna.
  • Afterburner Upgrade - The Afterburner upgrade for the Seatruck gives you the speed boost necessary to get out of difficult situations. Recommended for any encounters with Leviathans and other angry creatures.
  • Rebreather, Seaglider, High Capacity O2 Tank - These are all very useful for exploring at these depths. You will need all three if you want to explore the Crystal Caves.

Kyanite And Leviathans

Finding the Kyanite once you're in the Crystal Caves biome is not a challenge.

  • Look around the clusters of crystals for smaller, blue crystals. That's your Kyanite.
  • Stick close to the walls of and floor of the Caves. Venture too far into the center and you'll come across the Shadow Leviathan.
  • You can find quite a lot of Kyanite scattered around, but if you're worried about venturing too far, collect the three or four pieces needed to craft the Depth upgrades for the Seatruck and the Prawn Suit.

The Leviathans are really the biggest problem while going for Kyanite. If it's not the Chelicerate on the way to the Purple Vents, it's the Shadow Leviathan inside the Crystal Caves. Of course, you could try and kill these Leviathans, but your best bet is to play as safe as you can.

Mining The Large Resource Deposits

Once you've upgraded the Prawn Suit to reach the appropriate depths, you can mine up the Large Resource Deposits of Kyanite located in the Crystal Caves.

These drop up to 12 Kyanite per chunk, though you cannot mine it without the Prawn Drill Suit arm upgrade. Considering you do not need much Kyanite to craft everything in the game — although you will need some towards the end of the game — this method probably isn't that useful to you.

Beyond the Crystal Caves lies the Fabricator Caverns, the deepest part of Sector Zero, and a place that you should not enter unless you are prepared. There are loads of resources here, but a Shadow Leviathan also roams in its expanse.

Subnautica: Where To Find Kyanite

It's a vast, vast ocean out there in Subnautica. The waters are filled with dangers, but they're also filled with many resources you'll need for survival and upgrades. As you build yourself up with better and better gear, you will be able to venture further and deeper for the rarer resources. Among the most difficult to find is KyaniteThis blue crystal is essential for progressing through late-game areas but only shows up in a few remote places. Follow our coordinates to learn exactly where to find Kyanite so you can continue on your upgrade path.

Where To Find Kyanite

Before you start your expedition looking for Kyanite, make sure you have already acquired the MK1 prawn suit depth module and a cyclops to be able to survive where we'll be heading. Directions here will be as descriptive as possible, but it is very easy to get lost or lose track of your direction underwater.

Head out of your base and go forward until you come across two reaper leviathans on the other side of a small hill. Go past them and keep an eye on the right for an opening that looks kind of like a path in the mushroom trees. Dive down the hole here into the Bulb Zone.

Follow the massive bulbs you encounter until they lead you further down into a large opening. Keep diving, but be careful of a ghost leviathan coming up. It is guarding a big jagged rock area with a cave below it that you need to sneak by and down into.

Make it down this hole and you will begin to spot Kyanite in this lava filled cavern. The blue crystals stand out pretty well against the red glow of the lava, so they're easy to spot. They show up in the inactive lava zone, lava lakes, and lava castle only.

What Kyanite Is Used For

Kyanite is more than just a pretty gem. This resource, when used in a fabricator, is required to make the blue tablet. If you take it to your vehicle upgrade console you can make a prawn suit thermal reactor, or the same thermal reactor for your cyclops via the cyclops upgrade console. Finally, using the modification station, it can make either the cyclops depth module MK3, or the prawn suit depth module MK2.

The last use is a story spoiler, so be warned if you read any further and don't want to know the final use this resource has.

Kyanite is one of several resources you will need to have in order to craft the Neptune escape rocket stage two, which is necessary for your quest to escape this waterlogged planet.

How to Find Kyanite in Subnautica (& What It's For)

While exploring Subnautica players often discover they'll need some exotic resource that can only be found at its darkest depths. Kyanite is one such resource that can elevate gameplay but will require advanced equipment to collect. There are only a few locations to find kyanite, and none of them are easy to reach. Regardless players will be required to hunt some down eventually.

Kyanite is a rare material found mainly in areas below 1200 meters. This crafting component will only become necessary in the late game and has no early game uses. It resembles a large blue gemstone and can be found as solitary crystals, tall deposits, or short deposits. Kyanite is the only material in Subnautica that isn't guaranteed to drop resources when drilled, this is intentional and isn't a glitch. Tall kyanite deposits can yield as many as 22 crystals and shorter ones can only give a maximum of 12.

The only vehicle capable of reaching and harvesting kyanite deposits is the prawn suit. It will require the depth module MK1 to safely travel deep enough, and the prawn suit drill arm to gather the mineral from larger deposits. A moonpool will also be needed to craft the necessary depth upgrade and drill arm attachment for their prawn suit. If players expect to leave the safety of their prawn suit while searching for kyanite, they will also need a reinforced diving suit to avoid taking temperature-related damage.

Where To Find Kyanite In Subnautica

Kyanite can be found as deposits in Subnautica'sInactive Lava Zone and the connected Lava Lakes, it can also be found in raw crystal form in the Lava Castle as well as the previous two biomes. The Lava Castle is a giant mound found at the center of the large open chamber of the Inactive Lava Zone and has entrances on the north and south side. The Lava Lakes are found beneath the Inactive Lava Zone and has two access points, both of which can be found by following the river of flowing lava downward. There are only two entrances to the Inactive Lava Zone, and they are indicated by steep drops within the Lost River. Players can enter the Lost River from four different hidden openings in specific locations. These are found on the eastern border between the Mountains and the Bulb Zone, in the deeper northeastern section of the Grand Reef, in the northern portion of the Sea Treader's Path, and from underneath the Blood Kelp Islands.

Two kyanite will be needed to make a blue tablet, there is only one blue tablet in Subnautica, though two blue tablets will be necessary to unlock all the doors in the Primary Containment Facility. Kyanite is also required to create the thermal reactors for both the prawn suit and the cyclops. Among other materials, four kyanite will be required to build the Neptune's Fuel Reserve.
